A home provides a personal sanctuary and welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. However, every person’s idea of a personal haven may be different. For the owners of a residence south of Metro Manila, their personal haven comes in the form of a sprawling resort-like house with open access to spacious outdoor areas boasting of lush greenery and a large pool.

The floor layout of the entire residence is instrumental in evoking the resort feel of the home. Designed by Costa del Sul owner Didier Kerveillant and his wife Veronique, the interior spaces have a certain brightness and openness unlike any home. The remarkable structure of the home is complemented by bold colors and unique furniture and décor in the interiors, thus creating a cheery and vibrant atmosphere throughout the house.
